We expose the honesty gaps in the diamond And jewelry industry
We have been seeing more and more jewelry pieces featuring Black Diamonds. Black Diamonds are unusual, striking and fascinating to many consumers. And while most sellers of black diamond jewelry are ethical there are two huge issue that should be considered before purchasing a piece - IS IT REALLY A DIAMOND? IS IT A NATURAL EARTH GROWN BLACK DIAMOND?
Several years ago black diamonds hit the market and it was first used mostly as a fashion statement, usually smaller diamonds that are pave set along with white diamonds as a black and white theme. You can now find these black diamond jewelry in most of the major retail and online stores. It has increased in popularity and with it evolved to include larger engagement size black diamonds. With this increased popularity there have also been instances where consumers ended up owning black moissanite, or black lab grown diamonds instead of a genuine earth grown natural black diamond.
For consumers detecting the difference is next to impossible without special equipment. More so because moissanites are synthetic material that is carbon based and will fool most standard diamond testers. It takes a special tester that can detect moissanite from a diamond. To detect a lab grown diamond you will need a very expensive specialized piece of equipment that most jewelers do not have access to.
To BE SURE that the diamond is a genuine earth grown black diamond you should ask for a GIA document, a Colored Diamond Identification and Origin Report, that will identify the diamond as a genuine or treated fancy black diamond.
Do not get ripped off! Take time to get the proper documentation for confirmation and not have to worry a bit about your purchase.
“Visions of Beauty” is a video blog featuring customer directed custom designs ranging from the sublime to definitely ornate. It could be modern, vintage, classical, free form or anything else one desires. Customers bring to the table, pictures, sketches or ideas of what they want. With a good understanding of what they desire computer renderings are done for them to see if we understand their wishes. If the renderings are not right in their perceptions adjustments are made until they are satisfied. A wax model is then produced from the renderings which then show the exact size, height and width the ring will end up to be. If the wax is accepted then it is used to make the casting from which it is then finished and the diamonds are set. These are videos of the finished product. Each ring is exquisitely crafted to express the personality of the owner in creating their dream ring. Consider making yours today!
